Biography

STEALING LOVE JONES

"The sound of celebrity, scandal, glamour and sophistication, Esjay's voice burns leftfield rock hardness into their ingeniously arranged, super stadium-rock ballads." - SA MUSIC TABLOID

STEALING LOVE JONES: born from and fronted by the tall and talented opinion leader, Miss Jones(aka esjay), an established personality, brand and band within the South African music, surf, fashion and celebrity circles is now based between California and South Africa.

Miss Jones is proof of the proverbial pudding. Stealing Love Jones embarked on a 3-month tour of North America at the beginning of 2008 self-financed by esjay. This 25 year old artistic business woman was not afraid to approach investors and banks for loans and after just a few passionate attempts, a prominent company saw her vision and loaned her the finances. The tour included performances in New York City, showcases for Major Labels at The Viper Room in Los Angeles and an adventure that consisted of a 26 000 mile drive, sleeping and eating in a Ford E350!

In 2007, STEALING LOVE JONES (Then LOVE JONES) teamed up with organizations that aligned with the strong image and hard work ethics which has awarded the band recognition and success. The sponsorship from past sponsors such as KULULA.COM, CITROEN (2006), MERCEDES BENZ (2007), IMPERIAL NISSAN (2009) and SUNCOAST CASINO. These relationships have empowered STEALING LOVE JONES to travel South Africa and embark on world class video productions, where they would not have afforded to do so. This vision and business drive from "Miss Jones" has marked STEALING LOVE JONES as South Africa's most dynamic ambassadors.

Miss Jones is the ultimate package deal. Not only is her image strong, but so is her band and her songs: a killer brand! Stealing Love Jones has so far enjoyed 5 top ten hits in South Africa off their first studio album!

Stealing Love Jones recorded their second studio album and esjay (singer, guitarist and songwriter) caught the attention of world renowned producer, Mr Bjorn Thorsrud.
